I have a quick and easy card for you today. I am still feeling yucky! I am going to the doctor to get a shot in my back today and hopefully will feel better tomorrow.
The background for this card was created with the Tim Holtz Sizzix "Bricked" embossing folder. I used the Blending Tool and "Vintage Photo" Distress Ink to highlight the bricks. I have been seeing a lot of those big beautiful sunflowers in bloom so that is what inspired this card. The sunflowers were created with the Cheery Lynn "Sunflower" (DL 121) die. There are 3 layers stacked., The flowers were shaped with the tools from the Flower Tool Kit and a little bit of brown Flower Soft added around the edges of the center. The stems were die cut from the "Japanese Lace & Flourish Frame" (DL 137). You get a lace doily plus these two stems with this die. The fence is the "Victorian Picket Fence" (B123), It was "aged" with the "Weathered Wood" Distress Stain. I lightly spritzed the fence with water and daubed the color across the fence. I love these Distress Stains. They are so easy to color things quickly because the top has a sponge dauber on it. The grass is the Cheery Lynn Grass Border (B126). It was die cut twice and layered to give a fuller look. The kitty is from the "Screen Door with Cat" die (A2 164). Using all these Cheery Lynn dies sure helped to create a quick and easy card! The sentiment is from the JustRite "Vintage Floral Labels" stamp set.
As you know, you can purchase all these products from Joan's Gardens.
